Amidst Tesla's domination of the performance EV world, here's Porsche's answer - the Taycan Turbo S. With a back-thumping 761bhp and four-wheel drive it's definitely quick, but just how well does it do the twisty stuff?

  • Make NO mistake the whole concept of an Electric car is totally WRONG because at the end of the day you come home and plug it into the socket powered by the coal burning power plants. And here is a couple of questions to think about: 1. What will happen if 50% of all vehicles are electric and they need to be charged /think of power/ 2. Few of those 50% have a garage where to park it means that on each parking space it must be provided the possibility of charging /think of infrastructure/ 3. in terms of travelling what kind of stations will be needed with how many spaces for charging and what kind of power.

  • Drove one at an auto cross event. Was like like driving an old Buick. It also didn’t accelerate as hard as I expected. It’s an overhyped car IMO and I would not buy one. One day I will, but not now. It’s just too heavy.

  • It is actually a Turkish name. Tay(young horse) Can(soul) - mechanically it is a better sports car HOWEVER EVs are more software than just nuts and bolts so Tesla and its self driving technology is still Miles ahead of German cars. Killer combo would be a German car + Silicon Valley ❤️💪🏻

  • Oh, dear Chris - same uninformed BS about charging that TG continues to get wrong... 99% of the time you simply plug in when you get home and do a top-up charge overnight. If you are 'caught short' or need to do a longer trip, there are hundreds and hundreds of 100-150KW chargers around. Even more 50KW chargers. Just like a petrol/diesel car, you don't wait until you've completely run out of fuel before refilling. And bitching about the back seats (which other reviewers don't seem to have an issue with) and rear view in a sportscar is idiotic - buy an SUV if that's what you need... As an aside, in the last six months I have spent precisely AUD $12.03 at charging stations and travelled 4629.4Km - the rest was all on solar. Tell me an ICE that can run 0-60mph in 4.5s and offer that kind of economy.

  • Top gear never did a 8 minute high end advertisement with this high level production for Tesla. What is their deal? Tesla revolutionized the industry and TopGear tried their best to undermine the technology by pretending the car broke down. Then Porsche comes out and its literally an advertisement.

  • Hate to say this as a Tesla owner but having now driven one in Germany at the Frankfurt dealership, The Taycan is a superior car in every way except for the charging network which Tesla still owns hands down. That being said- there is apparently a revamped Tesla model S Plaid mode coming but the car I am really excited about is the Lucid Air with a 1000hp plus which insiders say will eat both the Taycan and model s for breakfast. Now that will be a challenge for Tesla and Porsche

  • Porsche is trying to get the jump on the Turbo name. At some point turbo will mean fast like they want. Unfortunately until around 2050 Turbo means Turbo. Forced Induction. We bit early Porsche. Guess we will see if it stays. I do sorta of like the car. Still way to Panamera-ish. Would have liked to see more of the concept make it through production. Very hard to do.

  • Another unneeded dishonest EV. And Porsche has succumbed to being just another car maker chasing politically correct brownie points. Turbo S? No convenient charging stations...for years and years? This is just another vehicle designed to turn you into a digital car couch potato.

  • Taycan is the Tesla killer... the Tesla from 8 years ago that is :( By the time this hits the streets, new model of Tesla Model S and the brand new Lucid Air will be out, and they both beat the Taycan in every one of the benchmarks mentioned: - acceleration 0-60 mph for Tesla and Lucid at below 2.4 seconds in normal mode while Taycan is at around 2.6 seconds, - top speed of 163 mph for Tesla Model S, Lucid air touching 230 mph!, while Taycan is still 155 mph (ok Turbo S reaches 162), - range above 400 miles per charge for both Tesla and Lucid while Taycan is still 290 miles, - maximum charging speed capacity for Taycan and Model S at 10 miles per minute, while Lucid Air is touching 20 miles per minute. All while BOTH Tesla Model S 2020 and Lucid Air 2021 are A LOT cheaper than the Taycan (Lucid Air targeting US$70-90K,Tesla Model S US$80-99K, against US$150K for Taycan Turbo S without all the bells and whistles), all with self-driving ready technology, air-suspension, noise suppression and ridiculous luxury. Not impressed, Porsche.

  • This sort of dilemma conflicts me to the core. I simply love the smell of burning dinosaurs through my Holley650 fed through a Hurst shift top-loader to a 9-inch rear. And the sound of the Pacemaker 2.5 inch exhaust is truly a symphony. But the future is coming...and every time I see a bit more, it looks amazing.
